Proud to announce signing of Briatin’s Got Talent Finalist Danny Posthill
Impressionist Danny Posthill revealed he was bedridden until 3pm with a migraine today ahead of the Britain’s Got Talent final – and so was Simon Cowell.
The BGT act made the revelation following his finale performance, and much to the crowd’s surprise, Simon said he’d also been laid up today.
Danny told hosts Ant and Dec: “I’ve been in bed until 3pm this afternoon. I had a really bad migraine.”
Simon then put his hand up and said: “So was I.”
Ant and Dec then made a joke about the judge and the BGT act being together.
But Danny shushed them and Ant said: “We’ll put that rumour to bed”.
Ahead of Danny’s performance, the co-hosts revealed to the Wembley crowd and watching public that he’d been ill.
They said: “Danny has not been well all day. He climbed off his sick bed to perform in the final.”
Despite being unwell, Danny still managed to put in a sterling effort as he did impressions of Paddy McGuinness on Take Me Out, Johnny Vegas and Ant and Dec.
He also did an impression of Keith Lemon and joked that judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon were “bang tidy”.
And while Simon admitted he enjoyed Danny’s act, he questioned whether it would be enough for him to win.
He said: “Will it be enough to win though?”
